Today’s Feature Friday spotlights J-West & Marly-Kait, one of our retail partners in Mississippi. Sharlene Parrish and her nephew, Jake West, opened the store in downtown Fulton in 2012. The shop is located in the former home of Senter Drug Store. Desiring to honor her hometown’s history and celebrate the shop’s vintage charm, Parrish opted to retain elements of the store’s original design—including the Senter Drug Store signage on the building’s exterior. J-West & Marly-Kait is a combined men’s shop and women’s boutique with a wide selection of casual and fine clothing.
Fulton is a quaint city located in northeastern Mississippi. After years of decline, downtown Fulton has recently experienced a renaissance. What once resembled a ghost town is now flourishing with new retail shops and restaurants. Locals are returning to the revitalized downtown area to visit new businesses and enjoy the city’s park. Downtown Fulton plays host to a Stand By Your Grill BBQ Championship in the Summer and a Fall Festival in October.
